Veteran actress Meryl Streep has filed a trademark application for use of her name.
According to US Patent and Trademark Office records, the 68-year-old actress, filed a trademark to protect her name for "entertainment services, namely, live, televised, and movie appearances by a professional actress and entertainer" on January 22.
Her name is also protected for "personal appearances, speaking engagements; autograph signings" and "providing a website featuring content in the field of motion pictures".
With the move, she will get a copyright which will act as a legal protection so that nobody can use her name to sell anything entertainment related.
